Wilier is a long standing cycling company that has been dedicated to their versatile frames and unique style. Their Izoard XP/Shimano Ultegra 6700 Complete Bike began standing out in 2010 as one of the best bang-for-your-buck road bikes out there and it certainly holds true to form. High to Medium modulus carbon is weaved together to make a fantastic blend of stiffness and comfort for anyone from novices looking for that first carbon road bike to intermediates looking to throw their hat into racing.
The kit that comes with the Izoard does compliment very well for the price. The Wilier-FSA partnered componentry not only has an awesome lightness to durability ratio, but has a really satisfying look. The only complaint is that the Shimano RS30 wheelset is a great training wheel, but look for something much lighter in a wheelset if you are wanting to jump right into a race. I'll update as I put more miles on 'er, but I'm really stoked so far.
